A fantastic recipe! There is a crazy amount of butter- I didn't realize because it's listed as an ingredient in both the cookie layer and the topping. IMO, that makes it the perfect recipe to bring to an event or give as a gift. I don't think anyone who tried them was not "WOW"ed by the deliciousness (butter is good!). I found them to be a breeze to make. I greased the pan and didn't use parchment or foil- worked just fine. When they were still slightly warm, I loosened them from the sides and cut them into squares using a sharp knife and a sawing motion. I think it may have helped to have them nicely contained in the pan.
A scrumptious treat for athletic adolescent boys (who could use the calories). The top layer is a kind of chewy praline, the bottom is a mildy sweet, hard cookie, and in the middle is a thin layer of bittersweet chocolate. After putting these squares in the oven, I discovered some grated chocolate on the floor. Next time, I'll grate the chocolate onto waxed or parchment paper and then roll it into a funnel for better control when distributing the chocolate on the hot cookie layer. These squares are too sweet for my husband. Alas, I find them irresistible.
excellent! I didn't have any trouble cutting them. I used my standard brownie and bar cookie method of lining the pan with foil, edges overhanging. When cool, I lifted the foil liner out of the pan, and cut straight down using a bench scraper.
As everyone says, these are easy to make, delicious to eat, but difficult to cut. I make them in a silicon pan, turn them out onto a plate when they are mostly cool, and turn again (now right side up) onto a cutting board. Cut with your longest knife and you're good to go. Easier to cut before they are ALL the way cool.
WOW. These are outstanding! I've made them twice so far, and the recipe is flawless. I increased the recipe by half, and made it in a 9" x 13" pan. PERFECTION!
Very good but rich. Ended up cutting them into more bite size pieces. Reviews are correct, hard to cut. Maybe next time I'll try lining the pan with tinfoil and cutting them on the counter.
Truly decadent! Easy to make - difficult to cut - more difficult to eat just one.
These are SO good. I made them in a quarter sheet pan so the crust was a little thinner, but I got more of a yield. I will make these over and over again!
All I can say is YUM! And easy. The only thing that was tough was cutting it on the plate after we served it. We offered it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and it was great. Still have a little in the refrig and can't wait to eat it tomorrow night.
